Fragrance sets are the ultimate Christmas gift and there is only one place I buy mine from - Fragrance Direct. They always have such great deals. I picked four gorgeous sets to show you, two for her and two for him. All of these smell insanely good and come in the most beautiful packaging.
I've been lusting after YSL Black Opium for a really long time, as everyone always raves about it. I am pleased to say, that it is indeed worth the hype. The YSL Black Opium Gift Set*(£62.99) comes with two bottles of the fragrance. A 50ml and a 7.5ml version. I absolutely love sets with a little mini for your handbag - genius! The packaging is to die for - very festive, sparkly and luxurious. Black Opium features notes of coffee,pink pepper, vanilla, jasmine, orange blossom, cedar and patchouli and it lasts really well on the skin. I am in love!
How stunning are the Black Opium bottles? Perfect Christmas gift.
Next we have a more recent release, the Paco Rabanne Olympea Gift Set*(£45.95). Containing a 50ml Eau de Parfum and a 100ml Body Lotion, this duo will put a huge smile on anyone's face. The design of the bottle is very unique and the packaging ties in nicely with the story behind the scent, giving it the modern day Cleopatra feel. I am absolutely obsessed with this EDP. With green mandarin, ginger lily and hydroponic jasmine, followed by salty vanilla, cashmere wood and Ambergris, it is one of those scents you will notice and remember. Very feminine and so, so beautiful!
Just look at the detail on the bottle and the packaging! I love the wings on the sides.
My first pick for him is the very popular Paco Rabanne 1 Million Gift Set*(£37.95). I adore this scent, as it is very masculine and almost intoxicating. The set contains a 50ml bottle of Eau de Toilette Spray and a 100ml Shower Gel and it comes in a very fancy metal tin. The price is absolutely fantastic too, especially considering the quality of the packaging. Ideal gift for him in my opinion. The notes are a combination of blood mandarin, peppermint, rose, musk, amber and leather.
The second set for him is my personal favourite, which I always buy for my husband. It's the Carolina Herrera 212 Men Gift Set*(£36.95). Just like the Paco Rabanne duo, it comes in a very nice metal tin, which is just fab and can be used as a 'man tin' :) My husband always needs some sort of tin for his stuff, so it's very useful. The fragrance itself is amazing and very unique in my opinion. It features notes of green apple, spices, grapefruit, ginger, sage, violet accords and a base of musk, cedar, incense and sandalwood. If you're not familiar with 212 Men, you have to smell it! It's amazing!
